US drone strike kills 10 in NW Pakistan
(06-12 14:26)

Pakistani intelligence officials say a suspected US missile strike has killed at least 10 people in a northwestern tribal district near the Afghan border.
Two officials say a pair of American drones dropped three missiles on a militant compound and a vehicle early today in Ghulam Khan town of North Waziristan.
There was no immediate information on the identities of those killed.
The strike came hours after an earlier strike, also in North Waziristan, killed three militants on Wednesday night, marking the resumption of the CIA-led program in Pakistan after a nearly six-month hiatus.
North Waziristan is home to a mix of local and al-Qaida-linked foreign militant groups.--AP
